[Source: The Arizona Republic] – A new report commissioned by Science Foundation Arizona says that high-paying technology jobs remained stable in 2008 even as other private-sector employment began to melt away at the start of the recession.

The annual report, completed by Ohio-based technology consultant Battelle, indicates that Arizona lost just one-tenth of 1 percent of its technology jobs in 2008 while private-sector jobs overall dipped 3.2 percent.
